    Hi,

    After updating to 2.4b and updating Emunand to 9.xx I noticed my saved games did not work anymore and that I had to restart the games from scratch (just tried Tomodachi to be perfecly honnest).

    Note: I have also downloaded the games updates from the eshop.

    Before I update my kids 3DS consoles, is there something I can do to prevent this ?

    Thanks,

    Did you , by any chance , formatted the microsd card and put the games in again ? Tomodachi life is a card 2 game , means the save is stored inside the rom. If you burned the rom again without backuping it first you lost your save.

    Test more games , I haven't got any problems with my saves after updating

    Hi, sorry for the delay in testing...
    I wasn't really aware that saved games for Tomodatchi and others did save data in the rom itself so I only backed up the actual saved files not the games themselves. No big deal anyway.

    BTW, there is a folder (Nintendo 3DS) that contains a couple of folders (one with figures - something like 835703a... and another one called Private). I have backed this too but I have not copied it back. What are these for ? Should I copy them over now (since then I have updated to 9.00xxx + downloaded a few game updates) ?

    Thanks again.
